The Hawaiian Flag, an unwavering tree, 1893.

THE HAWAIIAN FLAG AT A GOVERNMENT OFFICE.

In the morning of Friday last week, September 22, the stripes of the Hawaiian Flag, second in beauty to no other, was seen in the Business Office of the Postmaster General [Luna Leta Nui].

And this is something astonishing for us to see that the Hawaiian Flag is placed in the Office of one of the Heads of Government appointed by the Provisional Government [Aupuni Kuikawa].

Our friends will perhaps not have forgotten the thoughts we published earlier pertaining to the Hawaiian Flag.

The Commissioner of the United States came to Hawaii, whose name will never be forgotten by this people, Hon. James H. Blount, When he ordered that the American flag be taken down and the Hawaiian Flag be raised once again. We made it clear that the Hawaiian Flag was the foundation of this Nation, and it is the unwavering tree; and seeing its stripes once more shows us that its branches are growing, that being the Royal Standard of Queen Liliuokalani.

Therefore we report to you each and everyday all the signs that we see, and we also give advice to the Lahui, to live with patience, to hold your breath, for it is Almighty God’s time now to make right our Nation’s leadership.

The reestablishing of Queen Liliuokalani to the throne of Hawaii nei, that is not something for man to do, but it is for Jehovah. And as for this Government Head, it is as if he is trying to cover up their wrongdoings.¹ How sad.
